Meredyth Muller
Meredyth Muller began her management career in the Dueling Pianos concept on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas in 1995. During that time, she also served as President of the Southbank Merchant's Association working closely with her partners in the Association to strengthen and promote the Riverwalk development. Those partners included The Hard Rock Cafe, Fat Tuesday, Starbucks, Harley Davidson Retail, County Line Barbecue and several other national and regional operators.

Meredyth co-founded The Big Bang in the Spring of 2001 and relocated to St. Louis, Missouri to open the first Big Bang location in Laclede's Landing. In St. Louis, Meredyth was quickly recognized as a first rate operator and an energetic voice in the promotion of the Laclede's Landing Entertainment District where The Big Bang is located. She has served as the President of the Laclede's Landing Merchant's Association from 2002-2007 and has, in her typical style, developed close ties with all the business operators in the district as well as close friendships with area convention officials and local political leaders. Meredyth continues to work consistently in The Big Bang's corporate office overseeing the company's growth and operations.

Sam Leatherwood
Sam Leatherwood got started in the Dueling Pianos Concept in the early days of sing-along where he performed at Alley Cats in the West End District of Dallas, Texas. Sam began his management career as Director of Entertainment for Howl at the Moon Saloon in 1991. During his ten years with that company, Sam opened twelve clubs in the United States as well as two other locations in Holland with Crazy Pianos. Sam landed back in Texas on the San Antonio Riverwalk in 1995, where he partnered with G.M. Meredyth Muller to create and manage the most successful club in the company's history.

In May of 2001, Sam assembled the opening team for the Big Bang St. Louis. Together with partner and co-founder Meredyth Muller, and a group of talented entertainers and managers, Sam opened the first Big Bang Bar. Following the success of the St. Louis club, Sam and Meredyth opened locations in Tempe, Arizona, Nashville, Tennessee, Columbus, Ohio and Murfressboro, Tennessee. Sam continues to oversee the entertainment management in the existing locations, and also actively works on the growth and expansion of the company.
